The Andaz experience begins the moment you arrive through the bronze-coloured doors of our midtown Manhattan hotel and greeted by an Andaz Host. Have a drink in the bar downstairs while checking in via iPads. The whole experience feels very boutique, plus the welcome drink is a blessing and helps to pass the time while the process takes place. A really nice touch. Rooms are large loft-style rooms, spacious by Manhattan standards and minimalist in design with a great bed. Rooms are between 322 and 404 square feet but the high ceilings make them feel larger.
